Track Name: Different States
Drain me and take what you need
Leave me with nothing
We all know (how things became broken)
I’m letting go (of your selfish tendencies)

And if you say what you mean
And mean what you say
We could have been something
You gave it all away

Caught between different states
But you keep drifting away

It’s hard to think
Where we could be

And if you say what you mean
And mean what you say
We could have been something
You gave it all away

Caught between different states
But you keep drifting away

Yeah
Track Name: Summer Clothes
You used me
Wrapping your words inside of my head
Confusing
Sweating it out
Feeling helpless

Pass me over
Don’t let me breath (I’ve got these)
Eyes wide open and you’re
Dead asleep

I don’t think
Think you’re happy anymore

Hard to think
Ending sentences to forget
It just seems
Like you’re better off

So pack me away with all your summer clothes
As the seasons change, I feel disposable
So box me up, because you’re getting cold
Replaced this heart with only skin and bones

I don’t blame you
For giving up on me
If I were you
I would give up on me too

I don’t blame you (Tell me you miss this)
For giving up on me (Forget all the distance)
If I were you (That we’ve place between our heads)
I would give up on me too

So pack me away with all your summer clothes
As the seasons change, I feel disposable
So box me up, because you’re getting cold
Replaced this heart with only skin and bones

It just seems
Like you’re better off
You’re better off
Track Name: I Hope You're Happy
We walked around the cold concrete ground
Our minds were full of words that we wouldn’t let out
Or just don’t know how
We don’t know how
To let them out
To let me in
Let me be him

Cause in my head
I retrace the steps
The steps to your bed
But I can’t let go

I’m sure you know by now
My eyes are fixated on your mouth
And it’s something I want now
But we don’t know
No we don’t know

Cause in my head
I retrace the steps
The steps to your bed
But I can’t let go

And I draw your face in my mind
And I still see your eyes
When I lay awake at night
You haunt me

You haunt me
Track Name: Irritated
Black lungs
Ashes block out the sun
You used to be something I felt apart of
But now the days wear thing
You’ve got these new found habits
Changing who you used to be

There’s no light
in your sunken eyes

Leave me and go

This guilty conscience
drains through your teeth
grasping at the walls
until they make your hands bleed

You abandon everything
Leaving the four walls that kept you say
Tight ties be weaved
With the seams that seem to be
Unstable like the world beneath your feet
So just leave

Leave me again but this time with distance
The maps carved in your hands
Will keep your eyes wide open

Just leave
leave me
The maps carved in your hands will show you that

There’s no light
in your sunken eyes

You abandon everything
Leaving the four walls that kept you say
Tight ties be weaved
With the seams that seem to be
Unstable like the world beneath your feet
So just leave
